Third Sunday of Advent
Worship & Communion at 9:30am

in the Sanctuary



Good People,

I’m sure you know “the reason for the season” is to celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ at Christmas.  But, how much do you know about the season of Advent, the time of preparing to receive the Christ Child anew each year?  This week’s sermon will address the questions “What is Advent?” and “What are we waiting for?” (other than the obvious birth).  I look forward to being with you for worship to answer these questions.

See you Sunday,


Pastor Michael

Concert for Haiti Relief Update

Rev. Gisca Bonhomme reports that the funds raised at our recent Concert for Haiti Relief were gratefully received in rural Haiti.  They were NOT able to give food due to logistics problems but instead, they gave each family a tarp.  This was especially welcome since it’s raining every single week.   Below are two videos of the people who received the tarps.  In the video, they expressed how grateful they are to be receiving something.  One of the places called “Savon” the people talked about how they never receive help from abroad.  They talked of how people never think about them, so they were so thrilled to have us thinking about them.  They also said that they are going to continue to pray for us and for those who supported us.   They said a million thank you and Rev. Gisca also says thank you very much.
